Holiday Showcase

Below is important logistical information for your dancer for this weekend’s TFAD Holiday Showcase. PLEASE READ the entire post, and see Miss Paula at the front desk if you have any remaining questions.

The Holiday Showcase is completely SOLD OUT. No tickets will be sold at the door. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m.

All Sundays of November - 11am and 4pm

5 p.m. – Students ages 11 & up
5:15 p.m. – Students ages 7-10
5:30 p.m. – Students ages 2-6

Look for our TFAD Helpers upon arrival! They will be wearing red TFAD t-shirts, and will be located in the hallway just east of the Auditorium doors. They will escort your dancer backstage. Students need to arrive at Lebanon High School dressed and ready to go.

Ballet students ages 3-6 who are in multiple classes should wear their ballet shoes FIRST. These students will also need to bring their red TFAD t-shirt to put on over their black ballet dresses/skirts for their other class performances. Please send all of their items in a bag labeled with their name, and also label their t-shirt and individual dance shoes. TFAD Helpers will help the younger students change their shoes and put on their t-shirt.

Students ages 4 & under will be released to their parents following Act 1.ONE parent may come to the hallway to sign their student out at intermission. Our younger dancers may sit with their parents in the auditorium during Act 2. We understand that many of our younger dancers have early bedtimes, therefore they are not required to stay for the the full performance. We will call back all dancers at the end who wish to be in the finale.

Dancers should bring a bottle of water or sippy cup. Water only, please!Per LHS rules, no food, candy or drinks other than water are allowed backstage.

Please read our Recital Etiquette Guide, and feel free to share with family & friends who will be attending the Holiday Showcase.

Please feel free to share with your family & friends who will be attending the TFAD Holiday Showcase, or our Spring Recital! 

At our studio, we want everyone to enjoy the recital performances! To enhance everyone’s enjoyment of the show, we believe in emphasizing the rules of common recital etiquette.

The Magic of a Live Performance: When you attend live performances, please keep in mind that the performers can hear and see you. Your actions and reactions, positive, negative, or disruptive, can impact the performers’ success. All of the dancers have invested time and hard work into their performances, so please show them the respect and courtesy they deserve.

Entering/Exiting: Please plan your travel so that all of your guests are seated 10 minutes prior to the performance starting. Late arrivals are incredibly disruptive and will not be admitted during a dance number. Once you arrive, please do not enter/exit the theatre unless it is a true emergency. No exits/entrances will be allowed while the dancers are on stage. There will be a 15 minute intermission that will permit an opportunity to stand-up, use the restroom, etc.

Silence & Store Your Technology: Please turn off cell phones, iPods, iPads, and any other electronic devices prior to the performance starting. They may cause interference with the recital sound system. You should never speak, text, check Facebook, or play games on your electronic devices during a performance. You should also not check your device during a performance since the backlight is incredibly bright and distracting to other audience members. This will also show up on our professional DVD, will be distracting, and ruin the quality of the recording and stage effects.

Children & Babies: At our studio, we invite all children and babies to attend our performances. If your child becomes upset or fussy during the performance, please promptly step out into the lobby as not to disrupt the dancers and other audience members. A quick change of scenery is often effective in calming upset children. Please keep in mind when deciding whether to bring a small child that the Spring Recital is longer than the Holiday Showcase and small children may get antsy. There will not be room in the audience seating for them to move freely.

Noises: Please refrain from talking during the performances. This is very distracting to our dancers and your neighbors. Your child may not be on stage, but your neighbors might be.

Photography/Videography: Please remember that photography and videography are not allowed during the recital performances. This is distracting to your neighbors, all of the people behind you, and our dancers. It will also be distracting in the professional DVDs of the performance that we are having recorded. Order forms for both photos and DVDs will be available prior to the recital.

Food/Drink: Food and drinks are not allowed in the auditorium. No exceptions!

Curtain Call: The performance is over at the conclusion of curtain call (when every dancer comes onstage to take their final bow). Audience members should stay for the entire performance and should not leave early during the curtain call. Please stay in your seat until the performance is over and the house lights are raised. Then, exit with the rest of the audience. This policy is in place to show respect to all of our performers.

And, most importantly, remember to enjoy the show! Our dancers have worked very hard, and they will greatly appreciate your applause and enthusiasm!
